Jennifer has appeared at several book festivals, including Wigtown Book Festival, Bloody Scotland, the Nairn Book and Arts Festival and Tarbert Book Festival. She has also been invited to speak to various book groups, writers groups, libraries, schools etc., and has led workshops at Moniack Mhor writing centre and for smaller groups as well.

Jennifer is happy to talk about her new book “Daughters of the North: Jean Gordon and Mary, Queen of Scots”, or about her biography of crime writer Josephine Tey. She has also given talks about biography and crime fiction more generally, and about researching in archives.
